Happy Easter..I hope everyone has had a Happy Passover/Easter week!
My office was closed for Good Friday, so hubby and I enjoyed some hiking and birding at the Patuxent NWR here in Maryland. Finally, it was a beautiful day to spend outdoors. The North Tract of the wildlife refuge was new for me, it includes the wildlife drive and hiking trails.
Some scenes from our visit to the Patuxent National Wildlife Refuge, above are the Great Blue Heron, a Belted Kingfisher and a shot of the Rieves Pond.
Canada geese, looks like a female is sitting on a nest.
We watched while this Great Blue Heron flew and landed on this tree.
I saw the Tree Swallows for the first time this year. They were flying low over this pond, and a few swallows were on top of the Purple Martin house.
The reflections of the trees in the Rieves Pond were pretty.
Above are just two of the many sparrows we saw, the White-Throated Sparrow and a Song Sparrow.
Join in on the fun and for more wonderful photos please visit Mosaic Monday and more from Our World Tuesday
